(Jerusalem) Israeli police announced Wednesday night that they had intervened inside the al-Aqsa mosque in East Jerusalem to dislodge “agitators” who had introduced “fireworks, sticks and stones”.

Denouncing “an unprecedented crime”, the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, in power in the Gaza Strip, called on Palestinians in the West Bank “to go en masse to the al-Aqsa mosque to defend it”.

More details to come.
